Postgraduate research events

Our postgraduate research events are designed to promote the School's research culture and to provide an opportunity for you to gain confidence in presenting your work to your peers.

The two main events of the calendar are the internal PhD Conference and the NWSSDTP PhD Conference.

Internal PhD Conference

This annual conference, held internally at Manchester, is a lively event involving discussion and debate about the range of economics topics currently being researched in the School. It offers a great opportunity to strengthen scholarly and communicative links between students and staff.

NWSSDTP PhD Conference

The North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP) PhD conference is held every year, in parternship with the University of Liverpool and Lancaster University.  This offers students a great opportunity to communicate their research to economics experts from other institutions.
